Monkeying Around

Happy Chinese New Year!

I’m not totally familiar with Chinese customs and traditions but I do know that this year marks the year of the monkey and I thought it would be both fun and interesting to look at what being born a monkey means.

So, to be a monkey you would have had to be born in one of these years: 1908, 1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016


Monkeys are said to be fun loving people and always full of energy and cheer. They crave the spotlight and are always eager to let people know how they are feeling. Monkeys have a great thirst for knowledge and are usually very clever people. Excellent at problem solving, they are good listeners but can sometimes be unreasonable in their approach. This can lead to some people thinking monkeys are self centred, others would say opportunistic, either way, a monkey won’t care as they are so indifferent. As friends monkeys can be very loyal and devoted, as lovers they can be quite flightly. They tend to bore easily and look for new thrills and excitement.

Overall monkeys enjoy a good challenge, love being the centre of attention and will do almost anything to get ahead.

Does this sum up any monkeys you know or is it all just bananas? Please leave any comments below & remember to follow me on Instagram & Twitter ✌ ❀
